Subject: Experience in different field
  Hi All,

I am in USA since 4 years. I have completed my masters in Comp science. I have past experience in Field of Mechanical as Technician and right now i have experience of 2 years in IT as programmer analyst. I would be get 67 points if i consider my past experience. Can my both experience in different field would consider and should i get points for this or Not?

Thanks to all

Hi Sam70,

It does not matter if your education and experience are in different fields.

You can get points for the work experience as long as the experience is in the category of Skill Type 0, or Skill Level A or B on the Canadian National Occupational Classification (NOC). See link below for details

Yes, you can claim your full exp regardless of your education.

Caryy on

Good Luck
